Pumpkin Coffee Creamer – a favorite of ours this time of year. Sure. You can buy it in the store. You can buy it in Starbucks. You can buy it anywhere! But we digress. This isn’t Dr. Seuss. This is serious autumn flavors at their best! Sisters Know Best has found a way to make your own that’s fast and easy and delicious! Imagine on a blustery fall day that you’re sitting under a warm quilt reading your favorite novel with a cup of coffee flavored with your homemade pumpkin coffee creamer? Yes. We can see it!

It’s fall! It’s also time to make goodies for back-to-school events, harvest parties, and Halloween. These easy Rice Krispies Pumpkins are quick to make and will crown you Queen of Cool Food! We guarantee it!! The idea is simple and can be varied as much as you care.
Emily’s children are older now, and cereal isn’t always in the cupboard. Furthermore, Rice Krispies cereal was hardly a favorite except for making those ooey gooey bars all children crave. While Krispies weren’t available, Rice Chex were. Crushing this cereal resulted in something that would work well. Experimenting is always a good thing in the kitchen so she gave those a whirl.

Have you seen it yet? Rock Art – easy, cheap, creative, fun, addictive! It’s all these things! Oh, and requires readily available supplies.
We first saw Rock Art on Pinterest. It was cute. It made us smile. We pinned a few pictures. We said we’d do it. Well, we finally did; and we think you should as well! (Stay tuned for the Big Magic – it’s near the end of this post.) [Read more…]
Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day – a day to celebrate love – those we love, places we love, and FOOD we love! Let’s get right to the food, shall we? [Read more…]
Two months until Christmas! Oh, my!! Each year, like most of you, I commit to be “ready” with homemade gifts, fun wrapping ideas, cute decorations…. And yet I find myself scrambling the second week of December. Sometimes I think that’s what the holiday is about — scrambling, doing more than we humanly should, losing sleep, stuffing ourselves on the day, and determining to do “better” next year. This year (famous last words) will be different. The only thing I want scrambling is my omelet!
So here’s my plan and hopefully you find something here for yourself: [Read more…]
It’s the season for comfort foods. Fall is in the air, gardens are winding down, and our peppers are plentiful. We have a couple different stuffed pepper recipes for you to try. One of them is featured in our crockpot freezer meal series and uses cauliflower instead of rice. And the other is below.
This stuffed pepper recipe stands out because of it’s use of lentils. Lentils are known for being high in fiber and protein. These nutrition packed stuffed peppers are also delicious.
I’m a lucky person – very lucky. I have two great-nieces that WANT to spend time with me! I live over three hours from them, but we still make it work for them to visit during their school vacation in the summer. (Did I mention one of them gets car sick??) Brooke and Kenzie enjoy sewing. I LOVE to sew! I thought it would be a great idea to make simple pajamas when they were here, but we also wanted to swim, hike, go on the boat, have campfires, make s’mores, play games, read books, do some baking. You know. All that “girl time” stuff. And we had THREE days to do it all. Guess what? We did do it ALL!! One of our favorite things was the sewing project for children.
We’ve just left behind the month of July, I know; but Christmas is right around the corner – especially if you’re a crafter like me! I love the holidays, and I strive to make gifts every year. I envision a year of giving only created pieces of myself… Ah, to have all the time in the world to accomplish that!! [Read more…]
The Fitbit Charge HR – What a fun, motivating watch! Features I love are the step counter, flight counter, sleep quality feature, and the timer. [Read more…]
We don’t make a habit of telling you items to buy. This blog is about recipes, DIY projects and helpful tips but the E-Cloths are changing our lives and so we had to pass it on to our readers. We didn’t believe it. It was just too good to be true. If someone told you there was an easier way to clean windows, even in direct sun, with no streaking, AND the product was reusable up to 300 times making it environmentally friendly, would YOU believe it? Exactly. We didn’t either. Until we tried e-cloths! [Read more…]
My family requests I make this for them. It has replaced store bought bread and I couldn’t be happier! It’s easy, healthy and cheap!
Ok. It’s not really a homemade bug dope. It’s more like a DIY salve or DIY balm. It’s super easy to make, it’s natural, and it works! [Read more…]
It was only a short time ago that I was sharing how I harvest my vegetables and how to prepare my garden for winter, and already it’s time to start working on those pesky weeds! Pulling weeds is not anyone’s favorite thing to do, and there are hard-to-get-to spots in every garden. Here’s an easy solution. Natural Weed Killer – this stuff REALLY works and isn’t harmful to you or animals. [Read more…]
